Tell The FDA To Keep Crushed Beavers Out Of Food! TAKE ACTION!

Animals  (tags: AnimalWelfare, animals, ethics, law, society )

- 2087 days ago -
"Castoreum" is a compound from crushed anal glands of beavers and is used as "natural flavoring" in foods like ice cream. Sickened? Then please SIGN and tell the FDA we do not want this in our foods and want ingredients clearly labeled!

Petition signed.

There is a proposition in California to have GMO's labeled.
Maybe this will also help to have other items labeled as well.
YES on Proposition 37.

Ty, Sara.

Another problem of HONESTLY LABELLING an ingredient that

just as

PALM OIL, often labelled as "VEGETABLE OILS" (???)

because THEY KNOW THAT WE ARE NOT GOING TO CHOOSE, PICK from the Supermarket shelves & BUY "THAT" PRODUCT!!!!!!!!!!
THIS IS DONE PURPOSELY = for their MONEY & GREED..........

Why must we fight for the right to have our foods labeled as to their contents. If we only knew what else is in our foods, I am certain there are many other disgusting things, we would be outraged.

The same folks who tell us Raw milk is "dangerous", think it's okay to have us eating crushed anal glands & labeling it "natural" ... the same idiots who poison our foods with artificial sweeteners, colors, "flavors", "Carmine (which is a crushed red beetle, used to "color" strawberry yogurt) tell us it is their job to keep our food supply "Safe" -- while pandering to the corporations which are killing us with all their additives! Yup, keeping us safe all right!

Thank you Sara for this information. As a Vegan I read all the ingredients on the package and this is an additional thing to keep in mind when I see natural flavourings.

BTW, does anyone know where "MUSK" comes from ? It's also an anal story, taken from animals. It's supposed to have a nice scent, but in quantities it just stinks.
